Be there now: Design Film Festival

Running from 5 to 14 September, this festival celebrates design through films. What you get over slightly more than a week is a specially curated collection of films about architecture, technology, photography, and even street art. Head on over to their site to find out more about the films showing and how to get tickets. Art or death.  

Watch this now: Planes: Fire and Rescue

If you think there’s more than just a little resemblance to a certain Pixar film, it is no coincidence. Disney’s latest is a sequel to the 2013 Planes which is in turn a spin-off of Cars. In this aviation edition, a former air racer suffers a crippling injury that has him switching gears for better. Along with a motley crew of various other fire-fighting flyers, the planes must prove their mettle when a wildfire breaks out.

Watch this now: Beatlemania

Stuff Weekend: Catch some waves, check out the Design Film Festival, and listen

Beatle fans, this is as close to the deal as you can get (without going back in time). Go on a two-night-only musical journey with the awesome foursome, enjoy your favourite Beatle classics and rediscover the best moments in Beatle history all over again. Try not to cry too hard when the curtains come down on this musical biography.

Hear this now: All the Rage Back Home by Interpol

El Pintor is the first album since the departure of bassist Carlos Dengler whose duties have since been taken over by frontman Paul Banks. Lead single All the Rage Back Home is a feet-tapping, yet dark and broody tune that sounds just like the old Interpol so hardcore fans have nothing to worry about.
